Shall I translate?
I teach reading the standard deck of playing cards. After some twenty-five years of using this particular Metaphysical tool, I have found it to be a somewhat superior deck to the Tarot.
Imagine the child at the first grade level struggling with that huge beginner's pencil: such is the Tarot. Take away the cloud of symbolism that is necessary for the novice reader and you are left with basic Numerology, the basis of all Tarot decks. Don't get me wrong some of my best friends are Tarot Readers and I have personally read at least a dozen decks trying to escape the predictability of an Aquarian reading The Aquarian Tarot Deck. For those of you determined to read "the big deck", I have some helpful hints on studying the Major and Minor Arcana separately. For those of you that have mastered the Tarot I can only offer the respect of a peer and possibly a debate on the advantages of Numerology vs. Symbolism.
Of course you must have faith in your "Source" (God, Angels, Your own intuition or whatever you call on for access or connection) to use a tool with no energy source of its own other than raw Numerology, But the rewards of using a more precision tool are a clearer message and an accurate reading.
Years of working in the New Orleans French Quarter have prepared me for almost anything. I learned Palmistry while working at The Bottom of the Teacup. I developed The Star and Obelisk while at Yesteryears and it was Mystique's where I realized that the local readers were coming to me to learn. The Universe sent physical manifestations of the finer points of Astrology, Numerology and Palmistry, so that I had no doubt the meaning of certain planetary arrangements, cards, or lines on the hand. How does one forget the anesthetist that confirmed my analysis of his fingernails during a Medical Convention, or newlyweds drawing the two of hearts and divorcees the two of clubs? I rely on my disiplines rather than my intuitive abilities and The Universe sends me what I, or you, need. I may seem a bit aloof, but I can maintain a level of objectivity that allows me to read for myself and I rarely have "bad days".
I have had some success finding things.
I never worked in Jackson Square.
I have walked the brightest and the darkest streets of the French Quarter and Irish Channel and I've been challenged by ministers and thugs on the street. The Universe protects me from life's extremes and generally tells me what to say so that you can protect yourself. I'm known for addressing the real problem. I have become a little callous and distant as I've spent the better part of two decades in a metaphysically wild and physically dangerous place. So you of thin skin and thick denile should think twice before entering Robert's World.
The card layout that I use is shown below. Because I refer to it during the course of a reading, you might take note of the shape and the similarity to a little man with a staff or a star and obelisk, for which it takes its name. This is my creation, so you won't find it elsewhere except from the few readers that learned it from me. The Star and Obelisk is read very much as reversing the process of diagramming a sentence (somewhat akin to The Celtic Cross, but reading with a more definite time line!) so that it lends itself to the language of numbers, rather than forcing the reader to bend the message to accommodate "fuzzy" data. It helps to have a working knowledge of Astrology to fully access the time line, But I can help you with that too.
If you are interested
in learning more
about The Star and Obelisk;
You can see a more
diagram of the layout at my
Homepage at www.keen.com/Roberts World.
There is a clinic on its use in Tarot/Recorded Listings
and I will entertain related questions by e-mail.
If you just want a good accurate reading, I am available.
If I sound a lot like that fellow that read for you over the years in The French Quarter; I was "Rev. Bob", "Dr. Robt.", "Mister Robert" and it is probably time for another reading.
